NotesNews: "The prime minister refused to join a 27-nation EU treaty on Thursday after 10 hours of negotiations in Brussels aimed at solving the financial crisis. David Cameron said the accord was not in Britain's interests "so I didn't sign up to it". France's president, Nicolas Sarkozy, attacked Cameron's "unacceptable" demands for concessions to protect Britain's financial sector. Initially, 23 of the EU's members said they would ignore the British veto of a revision of the Lisbon treaty and negotiate a new pact outside the treaty, but later on Friday the three waverers - Hungary, Sweden and the Czech Republic - said they would take the agreement to their parliaments, leaving Britain on its own. ..."
